WASHINGTON - Democrat Nancy Pelosi's pledge of a new direction took a detour when she fumbled an Armenian genocide resolution and raised questions about her leadership as the highest ranking member of the U.S. Congress.
Pelosi, 67, speaker of the House of Representatives and next in line to the presidency after the vice president, swore she would push the controversial resolution to a vote, then blinked when some fellow Democrats withdrew their support in the face of furious reaction from Turkey.
President George W. Bush warned the symbolic resolution to affirm the 1915 massacre of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide would harm Washington's relations with Ankara. But as long as it looked like it would pass, Pelosi stuck to her guns.

She makes, soon to be ex-governor, Blanco look competent.
She’s blinking in morse code....R E P U B L I C A N S....A R E...W I N N I N G.......O S A M A...S E N D...H E L P
“Now that the damage is already done, I’ve decided that there is no need to actually pass the resolution. And I’m a very busy woman... So many disasters to create; so little time.
Anybody just now raising questions about her leadership is even more mentally deficient than Miss America.
Is it true when she blinks her Ears Wiggle??

This traitorous bitch should be arrested for treason and dealt with accordingly.
She can actually blink?
I thought her face was too tight.
Pelosi: “I would blink if I could!”
Clinton, Pelosi & Reed...aka: Winken, Blinken & Nod
Rethinking Pelosi’s war.......
Actually, when she blinks her eyes, the hair on the back of her head moves up 2 inches and the back of her panyhose stretches!
They should be spending time doing their jobs rather than picking fights with other nations. I hope the US people vote these bums out.
I heard she can’t swallow with her eyes open (ie, frog).
In other words, Pelosi did not care about the damage the resolution would do to the country and our national security. She only balked at losing a vote. Saving face is a bigger concern to her than our men in harm's way.
This week House Democrats also tried and failed to override Bush's veto on a children's health program. A bill to revise rules for government eavesdropping on terrorism suspects had to be pulled from the floor at the last minute.
But of all the things Speaker Pelosi had her a$$ handed to her over last week, this was the least important.
"I think it's more domestic politics, playing to interest groups, than backdoor foreign policy," said George Washington University professor of international affairs Henry Nau... "If members of Congress are plotting with interest groups to weaken Turkish support of U.S. policy in Iraq and thus undermine American forces in Iraq, the drama thickens beyond my capacity to comprehend," he said.
At the end of the day, I don't care if the Democrats are damaging our national security out of stupidity, self-dealing or malicious intent. It's all reprehensible.
One more facelift and she’ll have a goatee..
She did look Surprised by the opposition.
